View Full Version : Outlook Express .wav file?

On receipt of mail in Outlook Express, a musical(?) chord is played.
I'd like to replace this with a custom mde .wav file.
Any ideas please

Grant, you have to associate a 'New Mail Notification' sound. Go to Control Panel and in the Sounds option, scroll down to New Mail Notification and browse for a new sound. You can do a sound preview here as well.

Hi John,
Thanks for the info - works fine now.
If you're interested, there is a site with a demo of a Text to Speech prog which enables you to type a limited no of words then download them as a .wav file.

This can be useful in many places rather than the standard windows sounds
Thanks again
